        Subject: Numerical simulation in (digital) humanites

Dear list members,

With a colleague in numerical mathematics I have discussed matters of common
interest, such as modelling and simulation in connection with data science, for
some years. Recently we got to the question of applications of numerical
simulation in (digital) humanities.

I had some ideas, from practical use of simulations such as agent based
modelling in archaeology to theoretical connections in the 20th century, such as
cybernetics and system theory. Maybe even discussions about numerical simulation
in the context of digital analysis of sounds, images, and other media can
somehow be relevant too?

Any views on this? Any suggestions? If you prefer to write offline I would be
happy to collect suggestions and summarise the results.

All the best,
